A New Year in 2024: I Smell an Adventure!

My wish for all of you in the New Year:

·      A year of loving and being loved

·      A year of wonder and joy

·      A year of friendships and family

·      A year of learning

·      A year of finding your spiritual center

My goals for myself are still taking shape.

I plan to have an open heart for each encounter during my day.

I plan to give each person full attention, without judgement, only seeing their potential as spiritual travelers in this world learning each day a little more about how to give and receive love.

I shall seek my calm center any time I feel myself losing my inner balance.

I shall see each problem, or unknown or strange event as a gift.  I will ask three questions of myself.  What can I give to this?  What can I learn from this? 

I shall see this life as a spiritual adventure.  I shall ask , “Why has this come into my life?”  Not in a whiney way, but in an expectant way.  As one friend said, “I smell and adventure!”

With Love,
